Subject: Even donna's good
I usually hate Donna, but she adds something really nice to M.H.U.T. on the Grand-eo part. And I don't mind her on S.M.B.H., just a little too loud.
That's a way of sayin' this show's so good, it puts you in the kinda mood where you can't hate nobody.
Hey, you folks who were there, why don't you describe it to us? This here's history n' shit.
Subject: Just Another '72
It's 1972 so, things are good - real good. 4 stars may be generous considering Europe, Berkeley, Oregon and September (that's just '72).
The sound is a problem.
Subject: After Casey Jones!?!?!!?!
I dragged my older sister and her boyfriend to this magnificent show. At the time she was into The Doors, Led Zep, Stones and so on. After Casey Jones her and her dickhead boyfriend started to get up and leave. I said "What the hell are you doin'"? "leaving." she said, "It's over right."? WRONG!! One of top Five Dead shows I went to. By the time Truckin>D.S.>Comes a Time rolled around I was heading into deep space. When I think of the Grateful Dead this show and 8/1/73 always come to mind. If your not familiar with this one get ready for a treat. 72 at least today is my favorite year.
This Truckin>Dark Star>Comes a Time is without a doubt one of the most powerful sequences I have heard in 1972 and is one of my new all time favorite jams.
The Truckin' is unique, the Comes a Time is beautiful as they come (don't even mind the AUD sound) but the Dark Star is absolutely transcendental. Don't want to go overboard, but this is possibly my new favorite of the year. One word: Garcia. His playing is just an unstoppable force of nature on this Dark Star, definitely one of his very best moments!!
Anyways, while the Dark Star is the best part of the show, this is still a classic all around; Excellent Sing Me Back Home, and the NFA>GDTRFB to close is very solid. Please don't miss out on this show!!!
Subject: My First Show
Can't believe it was 40 years ago. What a great introduction this was!

Subject: Thank you Charlie!
Another beauty. Shows I like I, of course, compare versions to look for the best quality. Or at least that is what I used to do. Now I just look for the name Charlie Miller.
Charlie-- I think your business card should say "When you care enough to send the very best!"
Subject: Powerful performance
Too bad Pigpen couldn't make it but the band pulls off a tight, epic show regardless. Keith adds some beautiful textures to this Dark Star. The Comes a Time and Sing me Back Home are both gorgeous.
I was never a member of the Dump Donna club. Where do I sign up?
I mean, I've come to expect her to ruin Playing In The Band. But Sing Me Back Home?
Subject: Comes a Time
I know that for most folks, the cut in Comes a Time is probably a bad moment. Especially since the aud. recording is of such low quality. But for me it's the highlight: you glimpse how powerful it was to stand in front of that band's awesome live sound, which crispy clean boards only too rarely do.
Excellent both in performance and sound quality. Thanks Charlie.
Subject: Greatest Story
Dead Base and several of the (inferior) versions on IA have Greatest Story beginning Set 2, as opposed to its placement on the CM and several other transfers in Set 3. Is there any agreement on song order? I typically treat Mr. Miller's recordings as gospel. Despite the static, AUD patches, and channel switches, there are some wonderful jams here not to be missed.
Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" July 18th, 1972 at the Roosevelt Stadium, Jersey City, New Jersey, United States of America
'This day in GRATEFUL DEAD history'
You can't imagine 1972, you can only remember it.
The World Trade Center in New York City was one year old. Things were still cheap, the subway was thirty five cents, maybe it was fifty cents, and we were all upset because it used to be twenty cents.
Cassette tapes were the rage, albums were still a staple of the audio diet. High end stereo's with phonograph connections were the norm. FM Radio was still "underground", playing entire sides of 'LIVE DEAD' without commercial interuption.
You could only buy leaded gas and the guys at the station pumped it for you, checked the air in your tires, they'd check the water in your radiator, cleaned both the front and back windshields and brought you your change all for forty five cents a gallon. You never had to get out of your car, unless you had to use the restroom.
In 1972 Cocaine was made with ether instead of benzine, kerosine, or gasoline.....Things sure have changed.
Today sure ain't 1972 and I am not sure it's even the USA anymore.
Okay on to the show....
Charlie Miller has done it again, another audio Masterpiece. I highly recommend you click on Mr. Miller's name and collect all his GRATEFUL DEAD shows, he has some of the best out there.
I highly recommed adding this show to your 1972 GRATEFUL DEAD collection.
The GRATEFUL DEAD always put on a fantastic show for the New York City crowds. We'd hop on a bus, hitch a ride or drive with friends to get to Jersey City which is just a hop, skip and jump from NYC.
This show is a "Must Have" for all DEAD Heads.

Subject: Great stuff
This was only my second Dead show and it was a month after graduating H.S.As they did the first show I was left with a heavy impression of G.D.This concert was vintage and listening to this recording its pretty amazing the job C.Miller did.They say you can't relive the past but you can hear great memories like this.
Subject: This Show Fucking Rocks
This show is excellent! I'm sitting back and enjoying every aspect of this show. There's a laid back, groovin' feeling to this show that I personally find satisfying. From start to finish the Boys just hammer it.
I'm not sure what Mr. Miller does with his mixing and transferring, but it is fucking SUPERB!!!! All the shows I've heard from this guy are great. Just astounding. Thank you very much.
I sure would like to get a copy of this show on disc. This is definite road trip music.
